  • "A very comfortable cottage, super size bedrooms and excellent bathrooms/showers The rug in the lounge was a problem, it kept rucking up and could prove a trip hazard (other people had mentioned this in the visitors book)."

    I also felt that two keys would be an advantage for 4 people, and also an indication where the the parking permit could be used in the event of 2 cars as there was no vacant places in Cross street at any time during the whole week. They all appeared to be taken by street residents Having said the above we throughly enjoyed our stay and would certainly recommend Bottle Tops

  • "The cottage was clean and comfortable."

    The only problem was that on 2 days we got up to no heating or hot water. Someone did co.e to look at the boiler and he said it was to do with the ignition not working properly. It wasn't resolved before we left. Fortunately my son knew what to do to make it work. We had a great holiday and wonderful weather.

  • "Rug in lounge moved when stepped on causing trip hazard."

    Couldn't find refuse bin. Information book at property out of date eg Sally's Cottages listed as agents.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. We will ensure that we look at the rug, and will look at the information folder left in the cottage to ensure it is up to date. Thank you. The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

    Lovely property very nicely furnished with lots of nice touches and near to shops restaurant's and public transport Only one disadvantage for us no down stairs toilet and as we are both in our eighties and live in a bungalow found the stairs quite difficult But needless to say it is a beautiful property with everything you could possibly need and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to friends and family Many thanks John and Shirley

  • "Would thoroughly recommend this lovely cottage."

    It is so central for Windermere but in a really quiet street. Very well equipped and a cosy place to come back to after a busy day. One very small request would be for bath sheets,as we found the bath towels on the small side. Would definitely return.

  • "Exceeded expectations, but if I was going to offer a (very picky) constructive criticism it’s that the sofas weren’t very comfortable."

    We walked mikes everyday so wanted to chill with our books in the evening and at Bottletops they’re not that type of sofa. You could cut the size of the side table to something really small - just somewhere to put a drink - and squeeze in a much bigger sofa. Also only one sofa has a table, the other could fit in a small one too.

  • "We had the most fantastic stay at Bottle Tops."

    The cottage had everything we could want and we could even put our car in the car port which meant we took advantage of the £2 per person per trip on the bus which enabled us to enjoy the beautiful scenery that the Lake District has to offer. We wouldn’t hesitate to book Bottle Tops again.

  • "The accommodation was very clean and all the facilities functioning perfectly well."

    We did not find anything wanted. Just may be 2 sets of keys will help - only a minor point.

The property

Resting in the heart of Windermere, a bustling town in the Lake District National Park is Bottletop, a delightful, two-bedroom cottage.

Just paces away from a plethora of amenities and attractions, including Lake Windermere, Bottletop provides a charming retreat for a Cumbrian escape, inviting four guests; couples, families and friends are all welcomed.

Park up in the car port or take advantage of the permit on offer before heading indoors, reaching the homely living/dining room, complete with plush seating, a contemporary gas fire, a Smart TV, and dining for four.

Continue through to the fully-equipped kitchen, housing all the necessities to ease your self-catered stay, including a washing machine, tumble dryer, and dishwasher.

Prepare and enjoy mealtimes together, before sloping off to sleep in one of the two king-size bedrooms on offer; the first houses a TV, an en-suite shower room, and provides flexibility with a zip/link feature.

Prepare for your coming day in the sleek bathroom, before exploring the town on foot, reaching a hub of shops, eateries, and pubs, including The Lamplighter Dining Rooms, The Windermere Pig, and the Brookside Inn.

For breath-taking views of the lake, climb up to Orrest Head Viewpoint, or discover the Holehird Gardens, before taking to the water for an afternoon of kayaking or paddleboarding at the Windermere Outdoor Adventure Centre.

Remain on land by touring the Windermere Jetty Museum - Stories of boats and steam, or The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, ideal for families, before grabbing your walking boots for a hike through Borrans Park, reaching the picturesque landscape of Stock Ghyll Force in Ambleside.

Kendal is also a key area of interest to add to your itinerary, with the chance to tour the remains of Kendal Castle, stroll alongside River Kent, or practise your swing at Kendal Golf Club, before returning home in time for supper.
